Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Miscellaneous Refrigeration Products
Document Number: 2016-24758
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-10-28
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (``EPCA''), as amended, established the Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products Other Than Automobiles. Based on provisions in EPCA that enable the Secretary of Energy to classify additional types of consumer products as covered products, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') classified miscellaneous refrigeration products (``MREFs'') as covered consumer products under EPCA. In determining whether to set standards for products, DOE must evaluate whether new standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. In this proposed rule, DOE proposes new energy conservation standards for MREFs identical to those set forth in a direct final rule published elsewhere in this Federal Register. If DOE receives adverse comment and determines that such comment may provide a reasonable basis for withdrawal, DOE will publish a notice withdrawing the final rule and will proceed with this proposed rule.
